Death on the highways

November 8, 2012

A midnight hour rollover accident took the life of a 35-year old Westminster woman. At the request of the woman’s family, her name is being withheld until late this morning to allow additional family members to be located and notified. The accident occurred around 12:20 a-m in Blackjack Road, about two-tenths of a mile from south highway 11. Coroner Karl Addis said the victim was the unrestrained driver of a 1990 Chevy pickup headed east toward 11. The pickup ran off the road along the right shoulder. According to Addis, the driver over-corrected, crossing back over both lanes of Blackjack Road hitting an embankment and causing the rollover.
